OHIO VALLEY — There’s more than one way to cook a turkey, at least according to some second graders in the area.
Last week, Mrs. Hussell’s second-grade class at Roosevelt Elementary in Mason County decided to give some thought to just how to prepare a Thanksgiving turkey — and dinner — if they were in charge. Where would they find their turkey? How would they prepare it? What side dishes would be served? How would they feel after all that work?
There were some interesting recipes, and notes on the subject, which appear below.
